Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s first collaboration is in my opinion their most memorable. This post-apocalyptic adventure is absolutley fantastic. Focusing on the ex-clown Louison, his blooming love affair with Julie, and her father, the butcher and landlord; Clapet, who is found to be murdering his tenants and selling their meat to his customers. The main theme for this movie are war, famine, apocalypse as well as philosophical questions such as ‘what is right and what is wrong?’
Darkness, absurdity and horror all tied up with a bow of slapstick and visual gags make this masterpiece a must watch.
